The diary of Samuel Pepys by Samuel Pepys ( Book )
1 edition published in 1942 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""The diary which Samuel Pepys kept from January 1660 to May 1669...is one of our greatest historical records and...a major work of English literature," writes the renowned historian Paul Johnson. A witness to the coronation of Charles II, the Great Plague of 1665, and the Great Fire of 1666, Pepys chronicled the events of his day. Originally written in a cryptic shorthand, Pepys's diary provides an astonishingly frank and diverting account of political intrigues and naval, church, and cultural affairs, as well as a quotidian journal of daily life in London during the Restoration."--BOOK JACKET

Les miseĢrables by Victor Hugo ( Book )
2 editions published between 1938 and 1966 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sensational, dramatic, packed with rich excitement and filled with the sweep and violence of human passions, Les Miserables is one of the greatest adventure stories ever told. It is a novel peopled by colourful characters from the nineteenth-century Parisian underworld; the street children, the prostitutes and the criminals. In telling the story of escaped convict Jean Valjean, and his efforts to reform his ways and care for the little orphan girl he rescues from a life of cruelty, Victor Hugo drew attention to the plight of the poor and oppressed. Les Miserables is a masterful detective story, a comic and tragic story of romance and revolution and, ultimately, a tale of redemption and hope
